Move Catalog to new user (Mac)

Postby ziegenpe » Wed Mar 27, 2019 12:05 am


I created a new user on my Mac and now I want to move the C1 catalog to the new user account. Is there a way to do it that correctly sets the user rights?
copy and paste does not change the user rights and the catalog will not open in the new user account

The user permissions depend on the user who does the paste.

Lets say you are transferring from User1 to User2.

First, Make all of User1's folders and files readable by User2.
- select some top level folder of User 1 (Documents? Pictures?), change the permissions to allow User 2 to read, and then select "Apply to enclosed items"

Second, as User2, copy and paste all the files and folders into User2s folder structture.
